Dogs enjoy a friendly skirmish on the beach [Amazing Photo of the Day]


Either these dogs have been watching too much Game of Thrones or this is photoshopped. Either way, nice image. And I hate dislike dogs (because they scare me), so that means a lot coming from me.

    It’s NOT the dog, it’s the HUMANS that train them that way. My pit was the sweetest thing you could have ever met. It’s not their nature, it’s how they’re trained. Kind of like humans, we are what we’re taught, until the point that we’re old enuf or smart enuf to realise some of what we were taught is wrong.

    Had dogs most of my life and I will admit …I prefer them to a lot of people. They have no opinions, they have no bias, they will love & protect you without a thought for themselves. All they ask in return is so little, sigh Mankind should be more like that. Well, I’m not sure I’d want to come home and see the hubby licking himself…..>.<

    [@verve] Deep philosophy there indeed, but for some strange reason brought a smile to my face. My apologies for that.[@Ashraf] I have a general feeling of discomfort when dogs are around and, yeah, I’m even scared of the ferocious ones (who wouldn’t be?), but for me “hate” is simply too strong a word to be used that liberally, especially when the dogs in the picture look anything but worthy of that. Just my humble opinion.
    P.S.: The roots of my variable cynophobia go back to when at eight years old I was chased by a big German Shepherd and nearly caught, only to be saved in the nick of time by his owner. That did scare me sh*tless.

    [@Jacal] I have often wondered why perfectly ordinary people can hate or dislike something (or someone) for no apparent intelligible reason. Often the person themselves cannot say why they do, just a inner niggling of dislike. For instance some people have a great fear of flying in an aeroplane. One reason may be is that in a previous life, they lost their life in a way which carries their fear into the present. For instance WWII pilots being shot down with fear in their hearts carries the fear through into a subsequnet life. In Ashraf’s case, it could be that he lost his life by a dog, and experienced great fear whilst dying. It is the fear which is carried forward. You think this unlikely? There is order in the universe, and a reasonable and broadminded person could easily extrapolate this scenario.

    [@BearPup] Dangerous people tend to produce dangerous dogs, is what I wanted to say.

  • BearPup

    [@Jacal] Dogs like people can be trained / conditioned to maim and kill. Doesn’t mean the species is inherently dangerous. Inherently pliable, maybe, but not inherently dangerous.

    Many years after I still remember vividly a pit bull, trained to kill, ‘treating’ my childish, pacifist dog, who wanted to play. My doggy survived, because he was bigger and strong enough to defend, but he got several stitches and never really trusted any dog again. Dangerous people tend to have dangerous dogs, I’m afraid.

    [@Seamus McSeamus] Charles, nooooooooooooooooooooooo

    [@chuck] Are you also going to sick dogs on me?

    [@DCTECHGUY] Puppies or grown dogs, makes no difference to me.

    [@BearPup] If you consider “hate” as “need to destroy”, then maybe hate is the wrong word. I have no need to destroy dogs and have nothing against people that own dogs. I just extremely dislike them because they scare me, which may be prejudicial but is a natural feeling to dislike what you are afraid of. It actually isn’t dogs; it is animals in general. I wonder if I have a phobia.

  • BearPup

    [@Ashraf] I have an ex-girlfriend who felt that way. Yet every time she dropped her fear and treated dogs with more respect, she found that all dogs are essentially puppies.

    Your statement, if you’ll pardon me taking it seriously, is the classical consequence of prejudicial thought: we hate (read, ‘need to destroy’) that which we fear. That kind of karma sucks. LOL

  • Ashraf

    I hate dogs because they scare me shitless. LOL

  • Seamus McSeamus

    That does it. I’m sending my herd of dachshunds after you, Ashraf.


    Why pray tell do you hate dogs? Have you ever met a Golden-Labrador? How do you feel about puppies?

  • chuck

    You hate dogs?? You should have kept that to yourself !!

  • BearPup

    What do you mean you hate dogs?! How can you hate such intelligent, friendly, social, honest, funny creatures?
